|Traditional Igbo Clothing by idashyou: 9:51pm On Apr 22, 2010|
My husband is Igbo, and we have a 6 month old son. I would like to either make or buy an Igbo dress for my son to take pictures in. Do you know a website where I can either buy a dress, or a pattern to make him one myself? Thank you for your help!

Where do u reside?
Are there no Igbo couples around u?they could help u locate a seamstress and even choose fabrics and material.

I live in Utah and don't know any Igbo couples close by. My husband has a few Igbo friends here in the US, but they all live out of state!

OK, thank you.

idashyou:I recommend you sew an up and down wrapper. Sew also a cap of the same materal for male and a head tye pieces of the same materal for female and with these you will get the Igbo fashion for your children. Am not a tailor sha, but use to the make of we Igbos. Good wishes.
